In part one of my interview with iconoclastic Los Angeles art writer and gallerist Mat Gleason, we talk about the Los Angeles punk scene, The Atomic Cafe, the new paradigm, SST Records, the South Bay, conservative culture, art-as-time-machine, feminism, diversity, tolerance, Greg Ginn, Mike Ness, Mr. Brett Gurewitz, prog rock, The Misfits, the burden of facts, The Velvet Underground, Coagula Art Journal, Grad school, Mike Kelley, Green Day and careerism. Among other things.
In other words, a typical conversation with Mat.
